Question about Dynex (DX-500CC) ATX Mid-Tower Case
I had this for few months now, but I recently bought PC games like Overlord, Oblivion, World of Warcraft, let me explain, I have NO knowledge or experience about how things work, I don't want to melt or overheat my Computer and explode it, I do want to enjoy the Computer with good result, and good gaming. I am hardcore gamer- I play a lot of videogames, But not a lot of PC games, Since I was stuck with Dell-dimension 4400 for 7 years! Yes, I know I could upgrade it, but I knew the limit of that thing, It wasn't worth the trouble. I had to wait until I finally collect all of the parts I need, and finally built it. I had someone help me putting together the parts.
I am wondering if you think these what parts I list below here, is good enough, or should add or remove or upgrade, so that I can make sure it will live for long time, and plays decent games without killing the Computer itself.
I will list my System-What Parts I bought,

7900 nvidia gt video card is could be overheating, no warranty anymore. It is causing blue and red random spots, and alot of big polygons and cylinders during game play. Updated drivers for everything twice and not luck...? anyone?

There are three areas to concentrate on for a gaming PC. Memory, Video Card, and lots of venting to keep it cool. The CPU is good but should have a fan and a hotsink to keep it cool. You need 2 more gigs of RAM. Ensure the video card is in pci express slot. Otherwise it looks good.
